The hard drive on my old 20gb iPod died and I figured I’d just upgrade it to flash instead of throwing it away.
I bought a 32gb CF card and a CF card to 1.8″ ide converter.
The toughest part was opening up the iPod (which wasn’t all that hard – plenty of how-to’s on the ‘net). After getting the card in the adapter, and the adapter into the iPod, I closed up the case and plugged it into my PC for its sync. After it re-sync’ed my music all was well.
32gigs of solid-state space on my oldie-but-goodie iPod!
